Iris Karayan’s work tackles subjects including the violence of human nature, the relationship between the individual and the group, the construction of movement along with its evolutionary process, and the exploration of action in space plus the traces it leaves behind. This piece is a choreography of existential quests and social concerns. Here, she creates a piece for five bodies/performers that set out to redefine the way in which they relate to one another.

Iris Karayan was born in Athens. She studied dance at the Greek State School of Dance and completed an MA in Performance and Culture (Goldsmiths College) in the UK. She is the founding member and choreographer of ZITA Dance Company (2002).
